How’s the new Lily fitting in around set?
“She’s very sweet,” Ferguson told E! at Audi and David Yurman’s Pre-Emmy party at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood. “It’s definitely going from 0 to 100 because our last little girls, Ella and Jaden, the adorable Hiller twins, were a bit catatonic, which is kind of what made them charming. And Aubrey is the exact opposite. She’s a talker. She jumps into anyone’s arms…I think people will really fall in love with her and she’ll be quite the scene stealer.”

TV’s Funniest Family Encourages Parents to Help Build Strong Families by “Pourenting.”
The Dunphys may be America’s funniest “Modern Family,” but Claire and Phil take their role as parents very seriously. The comedic couple knows the importance of pouring one more serving of milk a day. Their goal is to build a strong modern family of their own and help fill the nation’s nutrient gap. That’s why Claire, Phil and family are the newest stars in their own Milk Mustache ad.
As mom to Haley, Alex and Luke, Claire wants to remind moms that they are role models for their families’ food choices, and encourage them to set a positive example by pouring one more glass of lowfat milk for herself, as well as for each member of her family every day. Pouring everyone one more serving of milk when the family is together is a simple way to ensure no one misses out on milk’s nine essential nutrients.
The ad copy reads, “Peerenting. Acting like a parent but talking like a peer might be Phil’s philosophy, but when it comes to helping my kids get out of the nutrient gap, I need to be the grown up. So I pour one more serving of milk a day. It’s something Phil likes to call ’pourenting’.”

O’Neill, who plays Mitchell and Claire’s father, Jay, addressed the controversy in an interview with PopEater. Calling from his Los Angeles home, he said he finds the complaint “half amusing, half annoying.” He noted that we haven’t seen Jay and his sexy young wife, Gloria (Sofia Vergara) kiss either. And, after 20 years of appearances in controversial comedies, O’Neill said that he sees such protests as just another form of show business, not to be taken seriously.
What do you think of the protests over Cameron and Mitchell’s muted displays of affection?
Oh, that’s so stupid. Who cares? When I hear that, it’s half amusing, half annoying. First of all, they’re the most conservative family of the three. Mitchell is a lawyer, and Cameron is a stay-at-home mom with a baby.
Paste magazine selected the 10 best sitcoms on TV right now , and of course one of them is Modern Family. Here is what Paste had to say about the show:
The funniest debut season of a sitcom in a long while belongs to Modern Family on ABC. The story of three inter-related families works because its characters seem familiar to life but fresh to the screen. Not that the show is above archetypes: There’s the rebellious teen seduced by popularity, the beautiful Colombian second wife, the trying-too-hard-to-be-cool dad, the patriarch who doesn’t like to show affection, the flamboyantly gay boyfriend. But it’s not taken long for TV veterans Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan to let each character’s uniqueness flourish through the myriad relationships within the family.
It’s these relationships that make even a completely messed-up family a valuable thing. No matter how bad things get in this Modern Family, it always beats the alternative of not having each other. They’re flawed individuals, offering only broken bits of love to one another, but that’s more than enough to cling to. As Dylan, the boyfriend of Claire’s oldest daughter so sweetly an wisely said—before breaking into a song about Haley with the lyrics, “I just want to do you, do you” in front of the family—“You’re reaching out, trying to hold on to something awesome… Haley’s got the kind of confidence that you get from having a family like this that’s passionate and accepting of hot foreigners and gay dudes and nutty people—you know, family that actually loves each other.”
The Modern Family star and his wife, Holly, have adopted a baby girl, his rep has confirmed.
Ty Burrell said: “I guess if Phil can raise kids, so can I!”
